Everyone expects to succeed in whatever he/she does. Unfortunately no one is always successfulin all his/her life, not even such great people as Marx, Mao, Madam Currie and Einstein. Different people hold different attitudes towards failure. Some people become discouraged andare even defeated by failure, while some other people learn lessons from failure and continuetheir efforts .
There is no denying that failure is a bad thing, but "Bad things can turn to good things." It alldepends on how we deal with it. If we are pessimistic, we will lose heart. If we are optimistic, we will see hope. I really have sympathy for those who, being badly hurt by failure, lose self-confidence and confidence in life. However, I have even greater admiration for those who, being stimulated by failure, go on straight forward to achieve success.
I believe in the saying "Failure is the mother of success." If I fail, I will try again, If I fail again. I will try and try again.
